[arch-general] rc.conf man page

My only concerns about having a man page is that eventually the
configuration file (in this case rc.conf) might gradually become less well
commented, or it's comments become outdated.  And that man pages tend to
be long on highly technical explanations that I for one have a hard time
understanding and are often short on examples. So rather than having the
rc.conf refer to a man page for instruction on how to use it. I'd much
prefer that the primary method of "guidance" remain in the rc.local and
perhaps include in any man page a url from which one can download a
current rc.local.example file.


No matter man pages become quite useful (and big) rc's files should still be
commented because this is very handy when editing them.
